I just love this Camellia

simply because it  came from

the farm when we moved.

I’m not exactly sure of it’s purchased date,

however, it was planted under a willow tree

in our backyard where it survived

but did not flower.

We had it for at least four or five years

prior to moving in September 2005.

Fifteen years later and it is

going stronger than ever.





Taupo Gardens…8It almost seemed like it was raining blossom…

in some part of this relatively small garden.



A close up of the pink camellia.

I did not notice the photo bomber

until I cropped to accentuate the dew,

which is not clearly visible on WP.
